Singing Doctor Delivers Babies with a Song
Original Airdate: 7/22/14
Joy in the delivery room as a newborn baby is welcomed into the world with a song.
Dr. Carey Andrew Jaja, of Magee-Women's Hospital in Pittsburgh has delivered more than 8,000 babies and sings to every single one of them.
"Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you!" sang Dr. Jaja.
"When I'm singing to those babies I think that I'm singing to a future important person. That's the credit I give to all of them," said Dr. Jaja.
Sometimes it's a rousing chorus of Happy Birthday, sometimes a touching rendition of What a Wonderful World.
"Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world. Welcome to our wonderful world," sings Dr. Jaja to a newborn baby in a recent video.
The video of the singing doctor is going viral and YouTube users are moved by the doctor's touching welcome to the babies he delivers.
One wrote, "This brought tears to my eyes." Another commented, "He's an inspiration."
The cute baby's delivery was also special because Dr. Jaja delivered the baby's dad, and yes, he had sung to him too!
